On Harriet Miers

I’ve been reading the hand-wringing on the right side of the blogosphere on this nomination, and I find myself shaking my head. They sound like someone preemptively breaking up with their partner so as to beat the other to the punch. So certain are they that Bush will betray them, they’re sounding like shrill lefties. It’s embarrassing, and it’s coming from some bloggers for whom I ordinarily have a great deal of respect. They need to tone it down.

I don’t know enough about the nominee to have an informed opinion, so I’m not saying one way or the other except that I’m giving the President the benefit of the doubt. Meanwhile, for some perspective, go read Thomas Lifson. He gets it.
